The release date of “Sour Candy,” which was kissed by Black Pink and Lady Gaga, has been officially announced. Ahead of the comeback, Black Pink is expected to once again target the global market in earnest with the attention of music fans around the world.
Lady Gaga announced on her official SNS on the 6th (US time) that she will release her sixth album “Chromatica” on the 29th. She previously released a tracklist that included BLACKPINK’s featured song, and confirmed the release date of the album on the same day.
Black Pink featured the album’s 10th track “Sour Candy.” No information on music has been released yet, but the collaboration of pop stars representing the East and the West has drawn attention from music fans around the world.
The U.S. Billboard covered the news of Lady Gaga’s confirmation of the release date of her new album in depth, pointing out this expectation. “Lady Gaga’s ‘Chromatica’ has become a new opportunity for him to team up with talented music colleagues,” Billboard said. “Sour Candy is with K-pop supergroup Black Pink.”
Lady Gaga’s album included Black Pink, Ariana Grande and Elton John. BLACKPINK has been named among musicians who decorated the present and history of pop music.
The collaboration between BLACKPINK and pop stars has already been verified. In 2018, Black Pink featured Dua Lipa’s “Kiss and Make Up” and ranked 36th on the British Official Singles Chart Top 100. Since then, the two artists have met at concerts and even staged a successful stage.
After releasing “Kill This Love” last year, Blackpink broke K-pop girl group records by ranking 41st on the U.S. Billboard’s main single chart “Hot 100” and 24th on the main album chart “Billboard 200.” In addition, She took the stage at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the largest music festival in the U.S., and met fans from around the world through the 32nd World Tour in 23 cities on four continents and the 4th Dome Tour in three cities in Japan.
YG recently said, “BLACKPINK is scheduled to make a comeback in June,” adding, “We plan to let fans know first when the exact schedule is set.”
